Pasting a small selection

Recommended Posts


I've recently started using Paint.NET, and I'm having difficulty pasting into a new image.

I'm copying a small selection (around 8x8 pixels) from one image, and pasting it into another image. This works fine for larger selections, but for small selections, when I try to move the pixels using the move tool, Paint.NET seems to think I clicked on one of the resize handles, and stretches the image, even though I'm zoomed in to 753% of the original size, and am clicking right in the middle of the selection. The only way I can move the image is to stretch it so it's much bigger, then move it, then resize it back to the original size.

Is there something odd I'm doing, or is this a known issue?

Yes, it's a known issue, and yes, Rick is working on it. :-)


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
